Wrestle the North Girl's Edition

Wrestle the North Girl's Edition

This years Wrestle the North Event was a Girls only edition and it was held at Nathan Phillips Square once again. This event was special because we were able to share it with the Girls from Beat the Streets New York City! Thank you for travelling all the way to Toronto BTSNY Girls and Coach Josh!

The event showcased our sport to hundreds of people in the audience and made it on the 6pm CBC news. Our sport rarely gets that kind of coverage and is a great way for us to promote our sport. Our girls loved the awesome WTN Wrestling Singlets they received for participating in the event! Look out for them at your local tournaments as I’m sure the Girls will be sporting them often! We’re already planning for next year’s event so make sure you look out for it…
